Bloofer's blog

September 23, 2007 -- Bloofer, a.k.a. Elizabeth Milller, is recognized internationally for her expertise on Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula -- its origins in folklore, literature and history, as well as its influence on the cultrue of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. She's now started a blog.

To me it's an interesting read, especially considering she gets some interesting emails from vampire wannabes -- much like I have in the past.

Her blog can be found here:

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
